Whisper of the heart full movie english sub
Seiji admits that he admires Shizuku’s abilities and that he had been borrowing a lot of books in the hopes that she would notice him. Seiji departs for Cremona, Italy, a few days later, for a two-month study with a master violin maker. Shizuku is inspired by his determination to fulfill his dream and decides to devote the next two months to her fiction. She asks Nishi if she can write a story about the Baron, and he agrees in return for the privilege of being the first to read it.
Shizuku concocts a fantasy tale in which she is the heroine, the Baron is the male hero searching for his lost love, Louise, and the cat from the train is the antagonist (a neighborhood stray known by various names such as “Moon” and “Muta”). Shizuku devotes so much time to her writing that she stays up until early in the morning, and her grades suffer as a result. She has disagreements with her family over her grades and future plans. Her fear grows as she continues to push herself.
Nishi reads her story when it’s done and offers his truthful opinion. Shizuku sobs as the burden of the previous two months gives way to relaxation. Nishi consoles her by telling her the Baron’s true story. In his youth, he met his first love, a woman named Louise, while studying in Germany. Nishi came across the twin statuettes of the Baron and his female companion in a cafe, but the shopkeeper would only let Nishi buy the Baron if Louise wanted to keep the female companion for repairs so they could be reunited. During World War II, however, the two lovers and their cat statues were split.
Shizuku Tsukishima, a junior high student, enjoys reading. Nonetheless, it appears that every time she opens a library book, the same name appears on the cards: “Seiji Amasawa.” Shizuku starts to learn about herself and her life goals when she discovers who this individual is—a revelation that will change her life forever.

Discover the brilliance of the legendary Studio Ghibli, makers of My Neighbor Totoro and the Academy Award®-winning Spirited Away, in this heartwarming coming-of-age classic. Shizuku, a shy schoolgirl, is sent on a journey to discover her true talent after a chance encounter with a strange cat. Shizuku embarks on a life-changing journey with Seiji, a young man determined to pursue his dreams, and is fascinated by The Baron, a mysterious cat figurine who lets her hear the whispers of her heart. This beautiful tale, based on Hayao Miyazaki’s screenplay, will delight and amaze viewers of all ages!
This Studio Ghibli output was based on Aoi Hiiragi’s manga, with Hayao Miyazaki’s story based on the comic strip. Shizuku Tsukishima discovers that all of the books she wants to borrow from the library have already been checked out by Seiji Amasawa, a young boy who aspires to be a violin maker. There are no major action scenes or fantastical elements as in most other Ghibli/Miyazaki films, but the film’s appeal lies in its portrayal of everyday life, such as scenes from convenience stores or fast food restaurants. The show successfully uses John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” (and its variations/parodies). A bonus disc containing extras is included. Subtitles in English are included. (The distributor had previously told us that this DVD lacked English subtitles, as we noted here.) However, we have confirmation from the publisher that optional English subtitles are included in this DVD.)
I think I might argue that this film has less action than “Tonari no Totoro,” but this isn’t necessarily a negative thing; rather, it demonstrates that the film’s appeal lies elsewhere. And where has it gone? The emphasis, in my opinion, is on the depicted daily activities. The story told here could happen to anyone, which I believe is part of the story’s appeal.
